Iona College Teams Up with Wrap for a Cause and Country Bank Supporting JDRF and VETSports
Wrap for a Cause launched its pilot program with Iona College to create a memorable, viral mobile billboard campaign that:
- Raises awareness and funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)
- Provides Iona a new path to donor engagement to support university programs
Based on the initial success of the program, Wrap for a Cause will wrap an additional van to bring awareness to VETSports in honor of Veteran’s Day.
